PEACE

PrismGarageFair

Hey there FabFree Readers!  Over the last few days I have been showing you some really nice gifts that are available at The Garage Fair and I have another one to share news with you about today.

Before I get into the details of my free outfit…

I wanted to mention that it has come to my attention that some of the barrels do not contain gift items, they contain for sale items.  Please take care when you are willy nilly clicking away at the barrels that you don’t purchase something you don’t intend to.  Take your time, look around and check the prices!  There are many gifts to be found, but many great deals too.

Sky Blue Lara

The playful 2 piece set called Lara that I am wearing today is a free gift that you can pick up at The Prism Garage Fair Display by buying the contents of the barrel for 0L.  What you’ll receive is the teeny frilled tied top and the printed denim skirt.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh + Alphas
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Are You A Poser?

If so, you should grab this fun Happy Girl Pose that I picked up for just 1L in the B&G Marketplace store.

PEACE!

What’s In Your Garage Fair Goodie Bag?

Snapshot_001Hello Fab Readers!  Yesterday was a really busy day for both Carson and I in the real world, but when we both happened to pop online at the same time yesterday and I teleported him to where I was taking this photo…  oddly enough, we were both wearing these jackets.  You know they say after a while you just start dressing alike, and I didn’t believe it until just then!  He hopped up on the crates behind me and waited for me to finish the picture, but I shifted my camera to include him too and I like the way it turned out.  🙂

Put on a jacket!

In my last blog post [HERE], I mentioned that there are several free gifts at The Garage Fair and these cool shirt/leather jacket combos that you see Carson and I wearing today are available as a free group gift for joining the Fair Lovers or Hunters  inworld group.  You’ll find these at the landing point of the event and the group is just 1L to join.

You can wear these jackets with or without the shirt and there are two versions of the jacket colour as well.  Plenty of mesh sizes are included in both the male and female packs and an alpha layer is included for those on the system body.

At Anchor

Snapshot_011
I have been digging in the garden and weed pulling for a week!  While it’s shaping up, I am covered in scratches from rose thorns and my nails are a mess. I think it’s time to set myself at anchor for a day and recover the state of my manicure.

Echo Echo Echo

The new group gift at Echo was just what I needed for a relaxing, lay in the sun day like today.  This sweet anchor printed halter top features a summery draped open back which gives it a real breezy feel.  This group is currently 25L to join (it will soon go up to 75L), but I gather from all of the empty frames in the VIP section that she will be adding more group gifts!

Sizes included:

  • XS-XL mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Tonic
  • Ebody

Just a Country Girl at Heart

A Trio of Puppies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I just finished opening the hunt gifts which Ripley and I had scoped out at the Country Girl Hunt currently running at Brii Underground, and when I saw this floral dress, I knew I had to blog it!   The event runs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time to head on over and do some searching for yourself.  With 10 complete outfits, all for 1L each, you won’t want to miss this hunt!

A Bohemian Country Girl

With three-quarter-length sleeves, and a skirt that falls to mid-thigh, the Lucineide dress keeps you modestly covered, but still allows a sexy glimpse of skin at your midsection.  The cheerful botannical print is complemented by purple trim, which coordinates beautifully with the boots tucked inside the prize package.  I really liked the way the skirt is softly draped. Although this frock is a perfect country-style dress with the included bandana and cowgirl hat, I decided to accessorize instead with hair beads and Gypsy bangles to create a boho-chic flair.  I was really happy with the final look.

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, and L
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, and XL (plus alpha layer)
  • Boots
  • Cowgirl hat
  • Bandana
  • Sunglasses
  • Omega applier for Lucineide make up for Catwa head (not shown)
  • Optional light

Kat is wearing:

Mesh Body:  Maitreya Lara

Mesh Head:  Catwa Kathy (bento)

Head Applier:  Glam Affair Moirah

Eyeliner:  Yokami Cat Eyeliner

Lipstick Applier:  Izzie’s Catwa Lipstick Applier (Aiko)

Eyes:  IKON Triumph Eyes in Coffee

Hair:  Magika Stay the Night

Hair Beads:  EarthStones Hemp Hair Beads – Head Wrap in Sizzle

Dress and Boots:  Brii Underground Lucineide Country Style Complete Outfit (hunt prize in Country Girl Hunt – 1L)

Bracelet:  EarthStones Tarnished Gypsy Bangles in Silver Flame

Puppies:  Glamour Poses Female 05 (I added the puppies, but did not use the pose) 35L on the Marketplace

Pose:  Le Poppycock

An Opportune Mewment

Snapshot_002
“Oh come on Kitty! I just got up to look out the window… Leave my ice cream alone!”

If there is one big rule about having cats…

…  Aside from cats don’t listen to any rules…  It’s pawsatively never to turn your back on a tub of vanilla icecream.  I swear this little guy waits until I’m not looking and then dives in head first, dumping the whole thing over – every chance he gets!

Get Some Cattitude

If you are a fan of all things cat, you might want to check out the new group gift for May at MOoH!, because it is the adorable Cassandra Catsuit that I am wearing today.  It is a pretty basic full bodysuit, perfect for a lounging day, however it has the sweetest leg shreds on the front and cat tail printed on the back that completes this cathletic look.  You can select from 6 different print colours on the included texture HUD as shown below in the vendor ad.

Cassandra catsuit

The inworld group at MOoH! is 100L to join, however as I always mention when blogging the monthly MOoH! group gifts, after joining you gain access to:

  • Their monthly instore raffle
  • Their monthly group gift
  • Their monthly instore credit of 150L

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L mesh sizes

Bug Me

You Bug Me

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she became a butterfly. 
~Barbara Haines Howett

Happy weekend, fabulous readers! The spring air was so warm and inviting this morning that I felt inspired to visit the Butterfly Conservatory to check out the butterflies. The Butterfly Conservatory is beautiful, as well as educational; not only did I learn about many different species of butterflies, but I also picked up a few tips on what we can do to help save the bees.

To be honest, I learned way more than I ever needed to know about insects… including this guy, who stared me down while his fanny blinked like a lightbulb. We don’t have “lightning bugs” in my neck of the real world, but I do hope the real ones are a bit smaller. Thank goodness he couldn’t get out of his box! 😯

Out of My Cocoon

The butterflies weren’t the only ones spreading their wings this morning. Earlier in the week, Nala Design put out a new gift for Fab Free group members, and I fluttered right over right away to snatch it up. I really like the classic design of this dress, making it perfect not only for a walk in the park but also for the office, shopping, or an evening out with your sweetie.

The Sleeveless Dress in Stone includes the belt and comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XS-XL with alpha
  • FITMESH XS-XL
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

To grab this gift for yourself, head over to Nala Design and activate your Fabulously Free in SL in-world group tag. The group is free to join.

Oh! And I added the Sassy/Classy Bag in black and silver, which is only 25L at Duh! I do love me some handbags! ❤

I feel the need to fly off and plant a virtual butterfly garden now. Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

An Island Never Cries

And a Rock Feels No Pain

I am a Rock

I am an island.  I’ve built walls…..

It’s been one of those days….one of those days when I just want to be alone with my faithful pal, Ripley, and disappear from the world.  I found the perfect poses for times like these.  Best of all, [West End] Poses is offering the entire Sadness set as an exclusive free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Beautifully capturing four melancholy moments, this pose set is perfect for conveying emotion, and is a must have for photographers.  Each of my snapshots for today’s post showcases one of the poses in this package.  Simply teleport over to West End Poses, switch to your Fab Free group tag, and click the display to add this collection to your inventory.

Here’s a peek at the other 3 poses included in the Sadness set:

Sadness
I Think it’s Time for a Ray of Sun Shine

With my downcast mood, I felt like I needed some bright colors and lighthearted flowers to brighten things up, so I donned the Aya sweater from Luziefee.  Another free group gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL, this open cardigan has an adorable tie at the top to keep you modestly covered up, while it offers a tantalizing glimpse of skin below.  Golden yellow black-eyed susans bring a welcome air of cheerfulness to my outfit.  The texture of the white yarn is quite realistic looking, and the long sleeves come in handy to ward off the chill approaching in the deepening twilight hours.

What’s Included:  

  • Cardigan in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

It’s time for this rock to get some much needed shut-eye so I can greet the new day with a positive attitude and a smile.  Until my next post, dear readers, happy shopping!

I’m Seeing Stars

Snapshot_014
Is it summer yet? I really just want to sit in the sand and watch the boats go by!  Since it’s only April, and still freezing…  I’ll have to settle for some SL summer therapy for now.

Starring Precious Designs

I picked up this star printed sundress called Songbird at Precious Designs as a free Maitreya Sales & News Group gift.  It had a nautical feel to it that made me ache for sand between my toes.  This dress includes a texture change HUD with six different colour choices.  You can also pick up matching shoes as a free group gift in the vendor below the dress!  This group is free to join.

Sizes available:

  • Mesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

King (and Queen) of the Jungle

Snapshot_0033

Queen Bee…

In my SL existence I feel like I’m the king of my jungle…. My 512 x 512 jungle….  it’s all mine, none the less. But the one thing I have learned is that I may be the king, but it’s the queen who rules the jungle. If she isn’t happy, no one is happy. My advice to all you guys out there… keep the queen happy!

Royal garb…

Today, with her help, we are showing off gifts from two groups. Hypnose has as a gift for their members, the matching King and Queen Shirts for him and her. There will be no doubt who is the royalty in these shirts. The group is free to join, however the gift requires you to pay 1L and get refunded 1L.

Since you asked…

Our couples pose is Since by Reel Poses.  The group gift is free to members but there is a 30L joining fee. This is the perfect pose to show off her best feature….  Dang! remember what I said about keeping the queen happy? I think I just messed up…

“Smart Casual”

By the Sea_001

I found this cozy little spot for dining and listening to music — a cafe of sorts with live music and it’s all set over the sea. If you decide to visit just take a hop over to Isolotto di Garda. It’s got a ton of comfy chairs and a sort of nautical style and it’s all enclosed with glass so that you can see the docks and gulls in the harbor not far off.

The dress code is “smart casual” so I had to dig up something appropriate. I decided to hunt something down instead.

More Women’s Stuff!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt never disappoints me, and this time I took a hop to Tori’s Stylez and hunted down that little red t-shirt to pick up the gift there. The creator generously had the gift for the hunt set to 0L so my floral top with it’s tie front and uniquely styled sleeves was totally free!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – Large + a Curvy
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Revisiting Redeux.

To add a finishing touch to my outfit, I revisited the Redeux Event. You have until April 21st to pick up all of the many free gifts set out for you by the generous creators. I picked up this free necklace by On a Lark at their booth. It comes with a color change hud that changes the color of each little stone for lots of combinations, allowing me to get the necklace to match my shirt just perfectly!
